2010 Volvo XC60 Long-Term Road Test

2010 Volvo XC60: Kenmorecool!

September 30, 2010

I'm moving into a house without air conditioning this weekend. In other news, it was literally the hottest day ever in Los Angeles on Monday. Well crap, better bump up my plans to buy an air conditioner for the bedroom.

After doing some online research and checking to see which units get the most little red dots, I ventured off to Sears to pick up my Kenmore 70051. It's nice; very sporty.

While I certainly didn't need a crossover like the XC60 to get the job done, I must say it was nice to have the tall load height and wide cargo bay. There was no need to kill my back (not that this small A/C unit is especially heavy) or deal with finnagling the box into the back seat or trunk. Just like so much associated with SUVs, I didn't really need one, but it was certainly nice to have.

Care to guess which long-termer I'll be using to move this weekend?
